Reasons to be cheerful – week 6

Michelle is sharing some new blogger love in her reasons to be cheerful this week, so I will include one here also. But first I have 2 very important ones to share;

  1. Last week we bought the longed for second car, a very beautiful little Toyota Yaris, it’s a 2000 plate but in absolutely mint condition. Not a mark inside or out and very low mileage, plus full service history with every stamp in the book. Seems to go well and although clearly more expensive than the bus it’s so nice getting home in 50 minutes rather than 90 minutes. Oh and do you know how many times I have got home to put Matilda to bed this week? Every. Single. Day. Awesome.
  2. The six nations has started and I am Matilda is a massive fan so we just have to watch all the matches otherwise she gets upset. Nice to have some proper sport on the TV and something more interesting to talk about than the latest footballer who is in trouble. Bracken however really doesn’t appreciate my shouting at the TV and soon leaves the room.
  3. As promised my 3rd one this week is sharing a little new blogger love. Mummy Glitzer only started blogging in January and has written some very personal and honest posts so far. Her most recent post is a perfect example, so why don’t you pop over and give her some support?

Now I must get back to work and not be distracted by the little girl eating her dinner at the other end of the table. A very short commute home today!

Reasons to be Cheerful at Mummy from the Heart


  1. If your supporting Wales, ‘yay’ to number two. Any other country, ‘booooooooo’. It must make your day getting home in time to put Matilda to bed. Precious moments.

  2. Great reasons to be cheerful. Bedtime can be a nightmare, but nothing worse than arriving home too late to say goodnight. We’re also a rugby household and small one knows all the moves (run, cuddle… fall over!!).

  3. A reliable car can be a very cheerful thing indeed.
